Since our start just under 4 weeks ago, DropoutDAO is now home to 200+ members in our Discord, with a growing waiting list of 400+ people. We’ve grown sustainably both in IRL and URL, and have learned so much from all community members around the world through our 1:1 onboarding calls.
Today, we’re excited to announce DropoutDAO working groups, a new way to contribute to the DropoutDAO community.
We’re looking forward to contributions from our talented community of unconventional thinkers. Learn more about the working group teams below, and join us here.
